Sam Ferretto hits the ball low and hard into the chain of beer net to open the scoring.

Brook Street’s record breaking run in this season’s Saltire Cup came to an end at The Bloated Dome this afternoon when they were defeated 2-5 by chain of beer.
The New Home Park side had twice taken the lead; Sam Ferretto had finished off a fine through ball from Andrew Cleary to open the scoring in the eighteenth minute, and although chain had equalised six minutes later, Andrew restored the advantage in thirty-six minutes.
The ‘visitors’ struck back instantly though, and hit the net a further two times in the remaining nine minutes to take a decisive lead into the break.
Brook Street were a spent force though and with the writing on the wall, chain scored a fifth goal with less than a quarter of an hour to go.
“We simply ran out of steam”, said Leoš afterwards. “We’d started well, but the three goals in quick succession did for us”.

“It’s been a great run in the competition, and one we can be proud of”, said the coach. “Now however it’s back to the bread and butter of the league and our quest for survival. That after all is our prime objective”.

He also confirmed that the reserves would be fielded in the remaining friendly matches of the season.
